Programme Director Preservation Research

I'm Steve Knight. I'm the Programme Director Preservation Research & Consultancy at National Library of New Zealand. I've been involved with the digital preservation programme here for about 15 years now. I am particularly interested in helping with the emergence of a robust and sustainable programme for National Library, Archives New Zealand, the whole of New Zealand and how we can contribute to the global digital preservation agenda. Please feel free to get in touch with me about anything to do with our programme. If I can't help you I will make sure that someone who can gets back to you.
